Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

CarComplaints.com Notes: After a half-decade of major transmission problems, Ford seems to have solved all the major defects with the Explorer.

We are happy to say that both the CarComplaints.com & the NHTSA data indicate no problems whatsoever with the 2010 Ford Explorer.

We rented a 2011 4X4 Explorer for a ski trip to Tahoe. Once we came off the pass, the rsc lights came on. The antilock and slip lights also came on. The car lost almost all braking ability on snowy roads. It was undrivable and scary. The rental car company responded immediately and sent a new vehicle out to us given the gravity of the situation. We had chains on the rear tires when this happened. We had 4 kids inthe car. Had the problem happened on the pass, we could have gone off the cliff. We almost ran into people and a light pole.
